Android 4.3 First Impressions

Now that the latest update has been available for a few days, I thought I’d share what I found new or updated in this version. Possibly not a complete list but what I’ve came across since installing the factory images once released.  I did a fresh install and full wipe to unsure a trouble free experience and so far things have been running great. My devices right now are Nexus 4 and Ne...[Read More]

Google Play, commenting and feedback – Editorial

Google Play, commenting and feedback I’ll be honest, I’m not sure why but I very rarely leave reviews on Google Play. I honestly don’t know why but from today, I will be more keen to. I’m sure most Google Plus users have seen which apps/games/icon packs, I’ve plused. I usually just do this after I download whatever it is I’m looking for but if it turns out not t...[Read More]

These apps are essential to me, but may vary drastically to what those of you reading this have installed or consider essential, that’s just one of the great things about Android…choice, and customizing your device to your needs.

The apps we can’t live without… – Series (Roy)

  The apps we can’t live without   It seems the Droid Horizon team have a similar mentality when it comes to Android apps, where most apps getting removed after a while apart from a few core apps.  So these are my indispensable apps that always make it on my phone… AdFree [root] – sorry developers, personally I can’t be doing with ads.  I never click on them, and if I d...[Read More]

The apps we can’t live without… – Series (Luke)

The apps we can’t live without… – Series (Luke) As someone who flashes a new ROM on my phone about ten times a month, I end up culling a lot of apps I procured over time and just try and install the bare minimum. I do tend to install a lot of root apps, but I have managed to only include one in my list. This list contains the apps that are always on my phone, they are the first ones installed on e...[Read More]

The apps we can’t live without… – Series, (Ste)

  The apps we can’t live without   We thought it would be cool to share which applications we can’t live without when we get a new device. Or setting up after wiping or factory resetting. (Such are the joys of crackflashing.) This will be a short series in which all the team members tell us what and why they just can’t live without them. It might be fun to correspond between ...[Read More]

Google Play Game Services. Some thoughts.

I hadn’t really meant to write an editorial but felt the need to share my thoughts on the new service Google rolled out recently. I’m checking every title now to see if it has real-time multiplayer, leaderboards, achievements and cloud saves.  As I check, I see more and more adding the new features, which is awesome. We haven’t really seen many killer real-time multiplayer games ...[Read More]

Editorial: Why a Nexus S4?

  As usual there were a lot of rumours around what might be announced at this year’s Google I/O, and as usual most of them where wrong. Since we’ve yet to see any impact of Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility, there was a strong rumour that we might see some confirmation of the fabled Motorola X phone. There was even some talk of a Nexus 5. However it wasn’t unti...[Read More]

HTC One after a week of heavy use

There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of reviews of the HTC One on the web – but that’s not what you’re looking at here. What I’m hoping to do is give those of you who are on the fence about the HTC One a shove in one direction or another. So, what were my concerns BEFORE I bought my HTC One? Will the battery be good enough? This was the main reason I sold my Nexus 4. I ...[Read More]
